Titan Sand Sculptures Return to Enoshima Beach
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Sand artist Toshihiko Hosaka again brought the fearsome titans to life on the beach of Enoshima. Hosaka sculptured the Colossal Titan to commemorate the release of Hajime Isayama's Attack on Titan manga's 23rd volume on Katase Higashihama beach.
Using only sand and water, Hosaka is recreating the titan for the first time in four years; the last time was to commemorate the 11th manga volume's release. This year's sculpture measures three meters high (9.8 feet) and is expected to be finished by August 13. The official YouTube account for Kodansha's Shōnen Magazine is streaming a video of the sculpture's progress so far.
The magazine will stream update videos on August 10, 13, and 15. Visitors can check out the art for themselves from August 14-23 after which the sculpture will be returned to the seas. Beach goers can also post a picture of the sculpture on Twitter starting on August 11 for a chance to win one of 50 Survey Corps QUO cards worth 5,000 yen (US$45).
Both the regular and special edition of Attack on Titan volume 23 will be released on August 9. The special edition bundles a scarf embroidered with Levi's name and a bolo tie.
